Many of you will be saddened to hear that Tom died in the early months of 1992 as result of an accident at his home in Worthing. Jack Crook writes to say that soon after Tom came to the school he quickly established himself as an outstanding sportsman. After war service in the Merchant Navy, Tom resumed his successful sporting career as a pillar of the Old Camdenians cricket and football clubs. We all remember Tom as a friendly, outgoing chap who enjoyed the simple pleasure of convivial companionship and agreeable conversation. We shall miss him sadly.
Elsie head has written to me acknowledging a small donation we made on Tom's behalf to a Charitiable trust and will be used towards buying equipment for mentally handicapped persons. Elsie says she will miss Tom's comments on football and cricket matches. She has many wonderful memories of cricket matches wit the Old Boys Cricket Club and somewhat colder ones of that dreadful football pitch and slope.
